Coffee is life, at least for me!

So, I asked my beautiful cousin, Magda, about recipes for Spanish coffee.  After all, she married into a Spanish family, so I figured – who will know better?!  And within minutes, I had SO many coffee ideas that I will seriously be trying a different coffee every week;)  And not just Spanish!  Thank you Magda!

Today, I am making Café Bombón.

I did a bit of research before making this pretty drink and it turns out Café Bombón started its roots in Valencia, Spain, and was then carried throughout the entire country.

Bombón derives its name from the Spanish term that means “confection.”  So, basically – sweet coffee.  Works for me!

PINTEREST? Older women? Where are you? Here’s how to get there.

This is a topic I have been looking into as well. I have been working, slowly, on my Invisible-no-more Pinterest site, adding to it and making new pins. I think this is a brilliant article from a kindred blogger💕

Take a picture with your phone, upload it to Pinterest and use the little square zoom in button and it will show you exact or similar items from all over the internet. I found it very useful when trying to track down a gorgeous wrap dress a character was wearing on Doc Martin.

I was never really into it, I just used to get annoyed when I wanted to look at an image online and it wouldn’t let me because I wasn’t a Pinterest member. But then I read this interesting article by Elena Peters

I would recommend Elena, she’s a no nonsense, straight to the…

Cheeky Life Lessons

No one says it better than Miriam! Another wonderful post by a special lady 🙂

Out an' About

With all of our dramas and flooding issues at home lately, life’s been a bit full on. But enough’s enough!

We all have our hard times so a big step back is sometimes necessary. Time out from the serious stuff where we can take a few deep breaths and focus on something lighter.

What better way to do that than through the cheeky antics of our pets and the animals that share our world.

The Ten Commandments of Blogging

I just found this wonderful blog by Wayfarer, that it appears, everyone else already knows about! I really love this post! And, I hope to follow these “commandments” as I think they make for a better blogger

A Holistic Journey

1. Thou shalt not waste readers’ time. Offer up thy readers a worthy sacrifice that they might take and be satisfied.

2. Thou shalt honor thy muse. Be prepared in season, out of season to seize inspiration when she comes that ye might write, dance, photograph, paint thy bliss. Be not caught without thy scroll, ink, pen, iGadget, camera. Thou wilt not redeem the moment the locust has eaten.

3. Thou shalt preview thy draft and spell-check before publishing that the Angel of Vengeance shall not fly over thy blog in the night.10commandmts2

4. Always speak ye the truth.

5. Thou shalt not take up the like button in vain, foremost on this blog. It is holystic ground. Thou shalt in integrity read the posts before clicking anything lest thou incite my wrath. Know ye that I see thou couldst not have read four of my brain-intensive posts in one…
